I am new to being the author of two blogs with different but related audiences, and I have to figure out how to handle essays that may be of interest to both audiences. My post “New Verses for a Bad Hymn” on my other blog is what raised this issue. I don’t know how I’ll handle this problem generally, but, in this case, I’ll offer a brief teaser and invite you to visit Lionel Deimel’s Web Log.“Earth and All Stars,” #412 in our hymnal, is a hymn we seem to sing a lot at St. Paul’s, though for reasons that escape me. I dislike the hymn intensely. “New Verses for a Bad Hymn” explains why.
What do you think of this “contemporary” hymn?
